There were people everyone just watching, powerless. I screamed, I kept screaming thinking this was it I was going to loose everything the police held me back as I kept trying to get to them. I was crying so bad it hurt, the ambulance and fire brigade arrived trying to tame the fire . Last thing I heard was my mother scream my name.
i woke up screaming and sweating , Sam ran into the room ,I was still half in my dream , I couldn't tell where I was but I kept screaming.
"Annie look at me" he said calmly as he cupped my head in his hands but I could still see the house.
"Annie it's me, it's Sam" as soon as he said his name I remembered where I was and calmed down.
"Sam" I repeated , barely able to speak . I looked into his eyes , he seemed scared.
" it's me, I'm here" he comforted.he pulled me into a hug as he stroked my hair, I wrapped my hands around him tightly not wanting to leave me.
We sat in my bed in quiet ,me in his arms with my head buried into his chest as he stroked my hair. I'd never seen this side to him , I didn't think he had one.
"Are you okay now?" He questioned softly. I nodded my head , it was only then I noticed he was just in some jogging pants. He smiled and began to walk to the door whilst turning and smiling to me" now try and get some sleep".
"Sam" I said before he left , making him turn to look at me.
"Could you maybe stay with me, I don't want to be on my own" I pleaded. He nodded and got into my bed with me allowing to put my head on his chest whilst his arm wrapped round my neck.
"Wake up you two" shouted a voice ,making me rapidly wake up to see Jake standing on the door frame with a cheeky smirk on his face. We both sat up, Sam looking not pleased with Jake.
"So how did this come about" teased Jake.
"That's it I'm getting breakfast" I put my hands up before Jake could make any more comments. I got out of bed , the pain in my side still there but it was better and pushed past Jake headed to the open plane. When we were all ready Sam informed me what we were to do today, we hadn't spoken about last night as I think he thinks I rather not talk about it.
"So today we are just going to keep on the road"he informed.I didn't ask questions as he looked like he wasn't in the talking mood. Jake took his car whilst I joined Sam in him large land rover, it was very nice.
About 40 minutes of driving and awkward silence I asked the questioned that kept playing on my mind." So where are we going?"
"To my boss" he replied not looking at me but saying it sternly." His your uncle"
"Why does my uncle want me?" The last time I met ny uncle ,who was my mother's brother ,was at her funeral and he sat next to me , holding my hand through the whole thing, I also stayed with him a short while after the fire until he admitted he couldn't look after me anymore.
"He's the one who gave me the job to look after you, make sure that nothing bad happened to you " so he didn't really care about me, he was just doing this because he was told too. I was just a job to him. It made me feel crushed inside.
"Pull over" I said quietly.
"What" he replied.
"I said pull over" I Said louder not looking at him.
"Pull over!" I shouted.he pulled into an empty car park ,as soon as the car stopped I got out.
"What the hell is wrong with you?" He yelled , I put my hand to my forehead , I was angry but hurt too.
"What is this to you" I questioned fAcing him but we had a huge gap in between us.
"What?"He was confused but my head was rushing with so many question"
"An I just a job to you? Do you just take me to my uncle then leave me? What am I to you ? Have you done this before? Is this how it works?" I could feel my hands shaking beside me.he paused.
"Why the hell should you care!" He shouted to me as we stood in the empty car park.
"Because I do okay!" I shouted walking away, I could feel the tears filling my eyes.
"Tell me Annie, tell me how this some how effects you. He shouted back.
"Because I love you!" I screamed at him with tears streaming down my face. He looked at me shocked and confused.
"For so long I have been alone and had to be strong. I'm scared Sam, since you came along I feel like I need you and to think that you don't care about me... it makes me feel broke. I can't be broken." I confessed sincerely. I didn't know what I was doing but I couldn't stop the tears. He just stood there amazed, I couldn't tell whether it was good or bad. So I just ran.
